They're also not doing that bad aside from XIV being free to play. I'd say this will allow them to avoid most, if not all, of their taxes incurred from XIV box sales.
Current conversion rates place 100m yen at 1.2392 million U.S. dollars. Think of a yen as a penny, as they have yen coins in the same denominations as American coins.
100,000,000 yen = 1,239,200 USD (or there about) meaning a Japanese "penny" has more value than an American penny.
To be exact, 1 yen is 0.0124 USD, or 1.24 cents, meaning the yen has a comparative value of 124% it's amount in American currency at this time.
On a side note, I am laughing at being karma-bombed by the above poster for pointing out how wrong they were. Glad to see someone counter-rated it though. Karma system is real funny to watch to be honest.
